SHILLONG, May 09: The Deputy Chief Minister of Meghalaya and senior National People’s Party (NPP) member, Prestone Tynsong has said that the recent upsurge of the party has other political parties worried about their future.
“The NE states are now being moved by the NPP and the regional parties are a little worried about their future,” Tynsong said while speaking at the felicitation programme for newly elected MLAs organized by the NPP state unit here on Wednesday.
Stating that Meghalaya as of now is having a coalition government, he however expressed confidence by saying, “But ultimately when we go again to seek (the mandate of the people), I am sure that the party will come out with flying colours (to form an NPP government).”
Referring to the party’s victory in the just concluded Assembly elections in Meghalaya and other states in the North East, Tynsong said, “All the hard work we have done in the region, the only person who deserve the credit is Conrad K Sangma.”
He further stated that Conrad, as a young and dynamic leader, has inherited the stature of his father late Purno Agitok Sangma, who was the region’s great leader.
